FIX THE POST OFFICE

Back in 2006 congress passed a bill that drained much of the money from the postal system  (billions of dollars). Congress knew what they were doing at that time and they know how to correct what they have done. Not to take action to correct their mistake will put thousands of postal workers out of work during this time of already high unemployment and will also cut some of out service.
Congress in all of their wisdom says that the postal service is loosing money and that is one of the reasons they keep raising the postal rate, to compensate for their stupidity.
Tell congress to rectify their error and not to cut postal service. Tell them that it will be wrong to throw thousands of workers onto the unemployment roles. Those are hard working people, with families. Why add more people to the unemployment lines?

STUPID PEOPLE

Some people just don’t realize how bazaar and stupid their idea of how safe a certain pet is even when they have young children in the household

This Chicago couple were proud owners of two piranha fish and a pitbull dog. They also had a daughter who is eighteen months old with a love for investigating the unknown.  This does not make her unlike most children her age.  In this case while the parents were doing something else and not watching closely she evidently put her hand into the piranha tank which was home for the two Piranhas.

Children this age don’t know very much about danger.  She knew the dog and it’s size was much larger then the fish and the dog she did not harm her, gave her the confidence needed to put her hand into the fish tank.  Well upon doing so one of the fish bite part of one finger off.

Her screams alerted her parents and they immediately took her to the hospital for medical attention, where the tip of her finger was found inside one of the fish.

Accidents such as this should make people that keep dangerous pets, be it animals, fish, birds or whatever, to take extra precautions to make certain contact cannot be made with them.

THE THINGS WE DO – - – WRONG, THAT PEOPLE PUT UP WITH !!

This is a subject that I have wanted to write about for a long time but never got up enough energy or nerve to put ink to paper.

When you get ready to tell people what their faults are, you have to be ready to make people angry. We often get carried away with what other people are doing and accepting that we do not consider what is happening around us.

There was once a time when girls and women would have nothing to do with a male if he was not dressed “Sharp”. Hair had to be trimmed, pants had to be fitting and clean, and on pants, that part called the waist had to be located at the waist.

I will be the first person to tell you that I am not the sharpest dresser in the world, but I look at it through very old glasses. I have been around for a couple of years and I think that I deserve to be a little shoddy. I wear my cut off, old blue jeans with my old tennis shoes and no socks. One of my favorite tee shirts fell on the laundry room floor when there happened to be bleach on the floor. Well, do I have to explain what happened to that tee shirt? For four years during my first tour in the military, I kept my uniform “Up Tight”. During my second tour it was the same thing. When I went home on leave, I dressed like a bum and was very comfortable and enjoyed it. My wife, at the time asked me why I dressed that way when I came home and I told her that when I was active I had to dress sharp when on duty so I would let my short hair down, while on leave.

While working as a bus driver for eight years, once again it was neat and clean. You can understand the remainder of that period of time.

Now I have reached that period in life where I am old enough to do exactly as I please so I don’t need any complaints from the ladies.

I will now get to the meat of this post. Men don’t seem to respect women now. They will say any and everything in the presence of women and the women will say nothing regarding it. As a matter of fact women, in this day and age use disrespectful language just as much as men.

Men call their women “bitches” and the woman will pass it off without a word. Their disrespectful word will run the gambit. No holds barred. Now I am not saying that I am Mr. Goodie Two Shoes because after serving four years in the Marine Corps you come away with a very good obscene vocabulary. But, one has to know when and where to be profane, and at the same time women have to know when and where to kick a disrespectful man to the curb. If that man has no respect for you, drop him like a hot potato.

The same goes for young men that have no respect for you in the way they wear their clothes, remember that hot potato. If he wears his pants below his rear end, it is time to cut him loose. Of course, my writing this will have no effect on how women will permit their man to treat them or how that man will treat his woman.  Fads come and fads go but the game of follow the leader is here to stay.  This is human nature and people can’t help  themselves, especially the young people.

THE VERY DUMB

In Covington, La, Edward Schorle 21 of Covington, La., accidently dialed 911 and the call was intercepted by Lt. Jack West of the Covington PD, who heard Schorle’s girlfriend asking  him if he was going to smoke that shit in her car, and if he was he would have to get out of her car. 

After locating the sight of the call through the 911 system, officers found it coming from a 2001 White Ford Pickup.  According to West, Schorle’s girlfriend told officers there was marijuana in the glove box of the truck and Schorle admitted that it was his.  West said officers removed one gram of marijuana and two pipes from the vehicle and arrested Schorle.

I DON’T AGREE WITH YOU (ON EVERYTHING)

For the last month or so I have been sort of quiet on my blog and now that the Republicans are fighting over who likes this and who likes that it may be time for just a little post on what they are showing us.

We went through the great debate the Republicans had going before the so called Obama Care bill passed.  They stood as one against that Medicare Bill and were not going to change their individual minds.

Now we can see how out of control they are.  Newt Romney and Rick Santorum cannot agree on a single thing but they were locked together against every word of the Medicare Bill.  How do you do something like that?  You can say that the sky is blue and I can disagree with you as a person.  You can’t always say that I am wrong because I may be color blind, and through my eyes your blue sky may be green to me.

Well when it comes to how people think we can never predict what is on their minds.  We don’t know truly where they are coming from.  Education, family teachings, community affairs and many other things enter into the equation.

People are raised with certain religious beliefs when they are young and at sometime in their lives they or how they believe changes.  The way they look at certain things change.  How they treat life and what they think of life changes, and just because you don’t think and believe as they do, doesn’t mean they are wrong.  Blue is Green to some people, because of a physical defect that they have.

I believe that many Republicans are locked in their way of thinking because there is a mental defect that they suffer from (money hunger).  If they are set on saying that everything Barack Obama is trying to do is wrong, then they should see eye to eye on how the country should be run.  But they don’t .

Patrick Henry in a speach said, “Give me liberty or give me death.”  A long time age many people believed in those words.  Today they are worth zilch (zero).  People don’t give a hoot about anything (except the almighty dollar).  There are battles going on in congress about almost everything, from religion to birth control.  Religion and government are not suppose to be put together and birth control, the government has nothing to do with a man’s or a woman’s family or how many children they should or should not have.

We are in the midst of the up and coming presidental election.  Lies and unknowns are being thrown around like a Ticker Tape Parade.  You can’t tell who is telling the truth and who isn’t.  Here we go again with the Blue Sky and the green one.  I think it is mainly GRAY.

Getting down to the meat of the argument, it is, is our government working as it should?  Some folks will say that it is and some will say that it isn’t.  To a greater or lesser degree it is.  There are people in Washington, D.C. that will say do this or do that, but they are not doing anything to improve what is going on.  The Republican possible selections for our possible next president don’t show much promise.  They say that they know how to cure our problems and the problems that President Obama inherited from our outstanding Republican president - George Bush.

We who believe in President Obama know that he received an almost impossible problem.  He has, as we say, he has worked with what he received, to the best of his ability.  He inherited two wars, from a republican, an economy that going down the toilet, a congress that changed to a republican majority en masse refused to work with him because of the House Leader John Boehner.

I would love to continue with this but I have other things to do today.

ARE WE AS STUPID AS THEY THINK WE ARE?

The people we send to Washington, D.C. to do a job for us, must think that they are playing chess and that we are the pawns, that can be move only one space at a time and they jump all around us at the speed of light.

They have gotten away with their shenanigans for so long that they don’t believe that we can do anything to stop them.  The politicians get elected and expect to be able to spend the rest of their lives in office.  If it were completely up to me I would throw two-thirds of them out of D.C.  They are actually do nothing, easy money grubbing individuals.  Why do we keep relying on them to do something substantial and we know that they will never do anything that will improve everyone’s economic situation.

For the small amount of work that they seem to be doing, they all deserve “F’s”  This budget thing that they are said to have agree to should have been completed the last time it came up.  Both sides know that we are in deep financial trouble and the economy is going down the tube.  They keep putting a bandaid on it which will only stay on the sore for six, eight, or twelve months.

Our main thing is, we, as the general public, that have the greatest need for relief, are getting nothing from the Republicans, and the Democrats are going full speed ahead in their spending mode.  We all know that there has been too much spending in Washington.  The strength of the U.S. Dollar in the world has been going down for the past ten to twenty years.  If it continues we will be in very deep trouble in the near future.  There will be a big change in the financial power of the world.  The U.S. Dollar will no longer be the monetary figure which everything is measured against.  As a matter of fact it is failing at this moment.

You see, many things that are happening to us that each side of the aisle is blaming on the opposite side.  The Republicans are saying that Obama Care is crippling us.  That it will not work, what the GOP won’t tell everyone  is that Obama Care is the fact of the matter is, it is modeled after Romney Care.  That is the truth, Obama Care is modeled after Massachusett’s medical care law.  This law is the baby of former governor Mitt Romney and voted on by the people of Massachusett, AND IT IS WORKING in that state.   So why are the Republicans saying that it is bad for the country?  Well lets take a look at what they did.  To start with they enacted the law, then they got assistance from the federal government to help them finance the bill.  The United States has no one to loan them the money to help with the health bill.

Then when it comes to knowledge of what is happening, they hide many of the truths of the matter.  They don’t tell us that Romney Care is well and is working in Massachusetts and the people of that state love it.

They (the Republicans) don’t tell you that it is working so well that nearly 100% of the people in that state have medical care.  They don’t tell you that he would repeal Obama Care and let each state find it’s own solution.

Since Romney Care came into effect, approximately six years have passed and in Massachusetts the people that are covered went from about 90% to approximately 98%.  AND THE STATE IS NOT BROKE YET.

Gov. Deval Patrick (D), governor of Massachusetts said that he cannot understand how Mitt Romney (R), Ex-Gov., can be so against something that he started in Massachusetts, that is working so well, and that is making progress on the federal level.

The Republicans will try, and LIE, and do anything to get President Obama out of office and make him a “One Term President”.  Their thing is to, go against any and everything he (Obama) tries to do, even if you like it.

They say that he is too easy on the countries that are driving the price of our gasoline up.  They want to know why he is against opening up the Gulf to more drilling and what does he have against the pipeling from Canada.  Why not do more drilling on the North Slope of Alaska?  There are legitimate answers to all of these questions.  Just think of how progress as effected the landscape of the United States in the pass when people did not think very far ahead as to what the consequence of their actions would do to the country.  Where are the Passenger Pigeons now?  What almost happened to the Grey Wolf, the Bison, the Alligator, and our national bird, the Bald Eagle.  Forward thinking people saved all of them.

They want to know why he does not take military action against some of the countries that are killing their people and also killing some of ours.  Well we just got our troops out of Iraq and the advisors that were left there are now getting killed

Iran is doing everything possible to draw the United States in war, but President Obama is trying to keep a level head.  We don’t need another war at this time of economic recovery.  We are deep enough in the hole as it is.

Well, these and other arguments have been going on for years and years and will be going on as long as man, (and woman) are here on earth.

DRUG TESTING IN LOUISIANA

This article was suppose to be about legislation that is pending in Baton Rouge that will require people on welfare to be screened for drugs.  I am all for that sort of screening, but blacks will say that it is there just to harass the black people.   Well white people use drugs just as much as black people but we live in a state where there are more blacks on the welfare rolls than whites, so you can say that they may be targeting blacks.  At the same time you can also say that blacks are doing it to themselves.  No one is twisting anyone’s arm to make them use drugs.

 

The question is……  Why must we use drugs?  Do we use drugs for medicinal reasons or do we use drugs to feel good.  The answer to that question is, “to feel good.”  Do we have to have them?  NO.  Would we die without them?  NO.  Would the world come to an end without them?  HELL NO.  Would we be happier without someone spending our money on drugs?  YES, YES, YES.

 

Each and every person that has commented on this subject their comment has at least one redeeming point, but the main one that should be considered but will not, is the one that makes it manditory for anyone receiving any kind of compensation from our government is subject to be tested for drugs without prior notice.  This should not be construed as being racial because the money that they receive is the money belonging to every man, woman, and child in the state of residence or the union.

 

If a person has any type of job that is connected to the federal, state, or local government, they should be subject to submit to random drug testing.  All lower levels of employment of the federal, state, and cities require their employees to be tested.  As a matter of fact you must be tested to just get the job.

 

I don’t think that anyone that is not using drugs will ever object to being tested. Only those people that have something to hide will object or try every trick in the book to hide the presence of drugs in their system.  The only bad thing about thinking of fooling the system is there are more than one method of testing, and you never know which one is going to be used.

 

Some people will tell you that the government has enough control over our lives, but if you consider what is happening in this country and what it takes to keep it on an orderly track.  Almost everyone is trying to circumvent our laws or rules.  Everyone is a doctor and will tell you that drugs won’t hurt you.  They will have every excuse in the world for doing what they are doing even though they know it is wrong.

 

The blacks will say that the people enacting laws that effect a small portion of the population are racist and congress is doing this just to find something against the black people.   They will say that welfare laws are set-up just to stop helping the black people.  Well if you check the older recipients, say sixty-five or older that are on welfare don’t use drugs and maybe they are also on medicare and medicade.  There are lots of white people that also fall into this group.  These people need assistance just to survive and in a lot of cases, what they receive is not sufficient.

 

The republicans will say that the money that these people receive is driving us into more debt, but if things were equal and their big businesses had treated people better long ago, maybe a larger number of these people would not be relying on the government to take care of them.  Of course argument can be made for both sides of this problem.

 

 

 

 

THE END………………….

OBAMA TOPS A TRUMP

Oh yeah! I knew it could and would happen. Leave it to our president to come up with a bee-u-ti-ful come back.

“The Donald” thought that he had something going when he attacked “OUR” President, trying to prove he was not born in the United States.  We have found out that President Barack Obama has an Irish background.  This just goes to show “THE DONALD”, that he should not mess with the White House, that he will get mud in his face.  (And then what would he look like?) 

Maybe he will keep his little pinch mouth closed.

This was written with tongue stuck in cheek.

Removing Tax Breaks of Oil and Gas Companies

A few days ago we heard the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, Republican from the state of Ohio, state that the  tax credits that the oil and gas companies are getting should be removed.  His reasoning for this is because of the gigantic profits they are reaping at these hard times that the U.S. public are going through at this time.

The oil companies are hitting us with higher and higher cost at the pumps and then they are still getting our tax dollars simply because our elected officials are afraid of losing the contributions from the oil companies.  I say if these congress men and women, and senators are afraid of losing election contributions they need to be elected out of office.  We do not need anyone that is controlled by big money.  They are not working for  us they are in bed with the enemy. 

That is one thing I have been saying for a long time.  Big money corporations don’t have our well-being in mind and its the same for a good number of our law makers.  Get rid of the ones that don’t have our welfare in mind.  Our homegrown senator DAVID VITTER, is against taking the tax credit away from the oil companies.  What in hell do our elected officials think we are made of?

Now that we have one day in which the oil prices drop a few cent and the price of gasoline came down by about 9/10th of a cent, I hope that the people that  want to ban the tax credits to the oil companies don’t change their minds.  The 9/10th of a cent will not purchase a drop of gas. 

I can’t understand Sen. Vitter’s thinking even though he is from Louisiana.  He should have some concern for the people of this state.  We are not the richest state in the union and we have been through so much since the year 2000.  We still haven’t gotten over  the devastation that was caused by the BP oil spill and the lies that that company was feeding us.

Yesterday when I heard that the price of a barrel of oil had dropped below one hundred dollars, I texted as many people as I could, telling them not to buy gas until today, just to see how much the price will come down.  I haven’t been out today but I truthfully don’t think that the price will drop that much.

MY TWO CENTS ON BIN LADEN

It is on everyone’s mind that the pictures of dead Bin Laden should be released. I don’t think that it would serve any purpose to have a look at those pictures.

Even his family has admitted that the man is dead. 

The U.S. has been after this man for ten years and now that they say that he has been killed and has been identified by DNA, someone, as usual came up with the thought that the government was lying. 

Why would that person or those persons ask why do we continue funding or giving aid to Pakistan when they are harboring terrorist?

And  on top of that, who is the smart person that released the photographs of the wrecked helicopter?  Another thing is, why does the news media keep stirring the pot regarding the photos.
